iwlocal event fails - teamsite

Today we had a horrible problem with teamsite. It appeared that no submit deployments were running since the box was rebooted for some patching.

Our submit deployments are configured in [TS_HOME]/local/iwlocal.cfg
where on 'iwatsub' event, a custom script kicks off the deployment.
This custom script logs to a file, and tailing that file showed that the script never ran, ever!

after a bit of digging, i realized that the event subsystem was probably down. This is how you restart it, to fix this problem:

sudo /etc/init.d/iw.local stop
sudo /etc/init.d/iw.local start

after restarting iw.local the submit deployments started running again. It may be the case, that iw.local needs to run after a reboot, and does not do so automatically.
